We have this little puppy we bought so that we could name a star for Cora, and he's ended up in our family pictures because he sort of signifies her now.

Anybody else do something like that?

Cute idea! The hospital gave us an angel bear about the size of your dog that would be a nice addition to a family photo.

That is really sweet. We have a little bear that my sister gave us when Eli was stillborn but I haven't thought to have it in family pictures. I like the idea.

Very cute picture!! I love the meaning of the dog!
Not exactly the same, but we had family pictures taken right after Finley was born and I still had my hospital arm bands on because I couldn't bear to take them off. Now every time I see the pictures I see those arm bands as representing her
We do have a stuffed elephant that we got for her, but I don't know if I'll use it in photos in the future.

We just had our first family pictures taken, and I wore a bracelet that the Feb ddc sent me after I had Ella.

We haven't had any family photos done, partly because I can't figure out how to involve Colm.

When they persisted in questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, "Let the person among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her." John 8:7

We have a blue elephant that was on one of the Bryan Luke's flower arrangements. We use it in the pictures a lot. But we've never really had a "family" picture made. I want to though!

Thank you to AlexAiden Mommy for my beautiful siggie!

I have a locket necklace with Eli's picture in it. Maybe I will start wearing that in family pictures.

I have a sheep stuffed animal that is kind of our stand-in. I don't always have it in pictures anymore (but then, we haven't had a family picture in forever....), but I did for a long time.
